-life characters, there is an intriguing aspect. one is that thailand has a version of an fbi, federal bureau of investigation, called the special bureau of investigation. in the soap opera, there is a tsi, a similar character, and he is the bad guy. >> the are a lot of parallels that are being drawn. there are a lot of theories as well everyone such theory behind the cancellation is it was ordered by thaksin shinawatra, the former prime minister in exile in dubai and shows he has political influence in thailand. the ruling party has dismissed it. do you buy that theory? >> well, the government has denied it. there has been no evidence to show that they did cantaloupe. this, of course, could ultimately play out in some way. that is another chapter of the soap opera we have yet to see. but the fact that channel 3's license is up for grabs and there is an investigation going on whether their license should be renewed, maybe they got cold feet. they are saying they practiced self censorship. violence? there is a lot of violence on soap operas. now the government is saying, if that is the reason,
budgets of the fbi, bureau of alcohol, tobacco crossfire arms and explosives, drug enforcement administration, and secret service. the number criminal prosecutions for immigration related violations has skyrocketed, now accounting for more than half of all criminal prosecutions of the federal level. the report's authors conclude obama's top priority when it comes to law enforcement. illinois is said to become the latest to allow undocumented immigrants to obtain driver's licenses. the governor has pledged to sign a new bill that will allow about 250,000 immigrants to become licensed drivers. only washington and new mexico currently allow licenses for undocumented people while utah allows driving permits. connecticut recently announced young immigrants who qualify for the obama administration's deferred action program to apply for driver's licenses. a federal judge in manhattan has dealt a major setback to the stop and frisk. tuesday, the judge of u.s. district court for the southern district of new york ruled police are not allowed to routinely stop pedestrians outside a privat
briefing along with the attorney-general and the director of the fbi. just like the analysts and special agents who are working these issues, we aim to stay on top of the threat picture and to help devise tactics and strategies and tools for getting ahead of it. today its standard -- it is standard procedure for agents conducting counterterrorism investigations to consult throughout the process with attorneys and prosecutors in the national security division. that is to ensure that all potential avenues for destruction of a threat, intelligence gathering, investigation and prosecution are all preserved. if you asked me to break down how much intelligence versus how much law enforcement work we do, i would be hard pressed to give you an answer. we are almost always pursuing multiple tracks at the same time. we no longer have to across organizational lines to bring tools and talent to bear against a particular threat or problem. for instance, our office lawyers in the office of intelligence work day in and day out with the intelligence community to secure authorities under the surveillance
interested in what we were doing, and so the assistant director of the fbi for counter-terrorism came to west point and said the fbi could benefit from this kind of education as well. and so they asked west point to go and expand our education for cadets to what we now call practitioner education. we send people from west point and combating and they teach each new about a boc of instruction on terrorism to reinforce the things that are taught at the f.b.i. academy. we also send them out around the nation to be able to work with joint terrorism task forces, which is not just f.b.i. people, but also law enforcement and others to educate them on the terrorist threat and the changes. and then creating a virtual network because of the connections of everybody on the internet so that when pracktigsners that are out there in police departments or the f.b.i. are studying a particular case or aspect of terrorism they can reach back into the literature and research at west point and get a little bit more expertise and the history and the background and the theory that they're able to do. >> what kind
interested in what we were doing, and so the assistant director of the fbi for counter- terrorism came to west point and said the fbi could benefit from this kind of education as well. and so they asked west point to go and expand our education for cadets to what we now call practitioner education. we send people from west point and combating terrorism center down to quantico, virginia, to the fbi academy, and they teach each new agent and new analyst instruction on terrorism to reinforce the kinds of things that are taught at the fbi academy. to come here and be informed about what we are doing to counter terrorism and where that is going. i'll tell you a little bit about that. i do want to state for all of you and especially for c-span these are my personal academic opinions and not the position of the united states government so they have that disclaimer out there. although, as you'll hear as i'm talking about it, i think it should be the position of the united states government. >> we know of osama bin lot and hiding and others hiding in various areas and in other places until the
of a former fbi agent van fishing in iran five years ago. robert levinson disin 2007. family is releasing disturbing new pictures sent from whomever is holding him, we believe. there is a "america's newsroom." i'm bill hemmer. good morning, martha. martha: good to see you. i'm martha maccallum. intelligence officials believe iran is holding him as a bargaining chip essentially, something tehran vehemently denies at this point. the new pictures show a haggard levinson than in earlier pictures. this sign says help me, we must be excruciating for his wife christine. she released the pictures to urge the government to do more and not give up hope. >> diplomatically it takes a long time for each diplomatic request to go through all the channels. i know over the course of all these years that the government and the state department have tried to do that but have been unsuccessful. i feel there needs to be more attention to the case and that's why i'm putting the pictures out and trying to get everyone to, to be reminded that bob is still missing. bill: so will it help? david lee miller live in
into the arrested may, the interrogators, one from the fbi and one from the cia, one from the military -- >> 3 interrogators. >> and a translator. they told me your story is curious. you do not have -- you are now in guantanamo and we wait until we get decisions from the pentagon to release you. until that time, we want you to be patient and to cooperate with our people. later on, someone came and they told me, you are here. cooperate. what that means, you said in kandahar you are ready to cooperate with us. i told him, yes, i said that, but i said great, to answer questions, not to work with the. he said, no, we understand you want to be with us, work with us. there would take care by family if i work with them and the cia to continue my job with the jazeera as a journalist just to give them some information about the link between al jazeera and al qaeda and the terrorist people of the land. of course are refused to do that. i told them i was a journalist and as a journalist and never [indiscernible] in may they released me. during this time, they're using torture with everybody. you just ha
as well. from dod, fbi, as was dhs. >> even though the fingerprints were found to been on a roadside bomb? >> that we have learned in the aftermath. i would have to defer to dod and the fbi for any specific information on that. but again, all the biographic as well as the biometric checks that were performed at the time did come back clean. but since that time as you have noted we've actually enhanced the program and the security checks, and we now draw upon a greater wealth of intelligence and data holdings on individuals seeking application to the refugee program which greatly enhances our ability to identify derogatory is, compared to earlier. >> does anyone else want to comment on that? so other than the recent iraqi refugee case, have there been many open-source cases of foreigners admitted through the refugee our immigration programs who have been associated with terrorism? and is there any evidence that terrorist groups are successfully exploiting this new u.s. refugees commission broke or or any other refugee program for the specific purpose of gaining entry into the u.s. in commi
which is the center of fbi search. >> five days of work and sti no hithe fbi says it will take a few days to get all the water out of the well. they plan on putting a camera in the will to see what is inside of it. they ♪ secondhand smoke affects everyone's health. it's not just irritating. it can cause heart disease and even death. speak up about secondhand smoke. your health and the health of your family depend on it. >> after 11 years, the u.s. war in afghanistan is winding down. ahead of schedule. president obama says of the time is right to let afghan soldiers do their own for 18. if the president met with afghan president's at the white house on friday. they agree that the u.s. troops would start to leave the country in larger numbers starting this spring. american troops will remain in a support role. but obama says that the u.s. war in the country will be over by next year. >> for a second day, protesters and pakistan are using the bodies of people killed in an explosion to block a main road. the protesters are demanding better security in the wake of thursday's attack. twi
with a small "a" and i was apprehended shortly after i appeared on your show by the fbi. for a number of reasons, because i felt the prosecution was political against myself, i chose to flee into exile. i am in canada now. my name is known to most people. you could research the and find out who i am. i have altered by apparent since have gone into exile. i took the name "x" because i kind of like it. >> has explained the video -- explain it to video that your group anonymous got ahold of, with this 12-minute video showed. >> it is apparent to anyone who can stomach watching of the entire 12 minutes. i, myself, we've been working night and day on this operation. i have watched it a dozen times and it makes me sick each time to watch it. i think it speaks for itself. these young men were sitting around immediately after the crime took place, which is clear from what they say in the video. one person even gets up at one point and leaves in disgust and goes to check on the victim to see if she is ok. the victim is still nearby. the crime is still in progress, in essence, when this video w
resistance he agreed to an fbi interrogation. no comment from the fbi on the substance of that. his lawyers say he was in libya at the time but he was on a construction job. sources say while he is freed he has to remain in the tunisian capital, tunis, he is still charged with suspected involvement after terror organization, joon. jon: he is the only suspect arrested where does that leave the u.s. in this >> reporter: the fbi confirmed to me they have an ongoing investigation and they have agents on the ground in lib a they can't say much more than that. by all accounts this probe is not much more advanced since we were in benghazi in october. one report says it is totally stalled. another says no one has been charged and that all suspects remain on the loose. the problem it appears very little cooperation on the ground in libya. we saw it in benghazi. security remains a big issue. militias are still strong. they are doing attacking of people that should be doing the investigating. so you see the problems. one suspect was questioned in december in cairo with possible links, both to the atta
interviewed. there were clues in the fbi. the fbi did not talk to the cia. we came up with a model that fixed the pentagon. the pentagon used to have the services staffing and fighting separate wars. they would equip themselves separately. we decided to do what the military did. a joint command was created. he can come from any military service. they now trained and equipped to gather. -- togetherthe dni is the joint commander across 16 intel agencies. he leverage is their strength to produce intel products. that is the backbone of how we get intelligence to policy makers and that has dramatically improved. on the fusion centers, that is a different thing. those are local centers that have gone up to serve local law enforcement. they pull together national intelligence streams that they get from the homeland security department or the fbi with streams of local intelligence and a share it. the homelands department has tried to insist on privacy in these agencies and provide some financial support. this is a work in progress. some of them worked very well. one in los angeles works very well. ot
that in many this movie. there was an f.b.i. agent who walked out and said "i won't have anything to do with this, it's illegal, it's wrong, it's what our enemies do." there's not a character in this movie who raises the question about whether torture is right or wrong let alone whether it works. >> brown: let me ask you very briefly in our last 30 seconds. your fear here is that this portrayal will impact public understanding and possibly policy? >> i think pop culture is incredibly powerful. i think the t.v. show "24" if you look at the numbers changed public opinion and made people much more comfortable with torture. >> brown: mark, do you think this will affect public policy and perception? >> i think it will affect the way people remember this story. i personally didn't take away, as jane has, a strong mess on the subject of torture one way or the other. i did, for instance, from the show "24" which is clearly pro-torture, not from this, though. >> brown: mark bowden and jane mayer, thank you very much. >> thank you. >> brown: we have an extended interview with director catherine b
released by the fbi, december saw the most background checks for gun sales since the agency's current system was in place in 1988. overall gun checks surged by 19% in 2012 from the previous year. potential gun buyers have been flocking to gun shows in record numbers all across the country since the shooting in newtown, connecticut, possibly worried about new restrictions in the coming months. >> we know that there's going to be some new laws. so, i kind of put it off and put it off until now. now, you know, we went through and came down here to get what we wanted before everything is illegal. bill: gun shows on the whole facing controversy. recent shows in the northeast were canceled following the newtown shooting, also angering gun advocates. martha: let's go back to d.c. now and the battle over taxes and spending and the nation's crushing debt. top democrats are now signaling they want to go back and get more of your money in the debt ceiling debate that is coming, despite the fiscal cliff deal that saw taxes go up 77% of americans. nancy pelosi says it is not enough money really th
enforcement than we do for the fbi, the dea, the atf, and other federal law enforcement agencies, at some point we have to acknowledge -- and we have been courted more people than any time before -- we have to acknowledge that the time is now for a balanced approach. >> can the coalition of blacks, latinos, and other communities sustain the obama campaign? are we looking at a true shift in the rhetorical landscape? >> i will point that for a second. i do not want to talk about campaigns. i will just say this quickly. i think what we saw was a seminal shift in the electorate and if the republicans do not go to the center and continue to be dominated by the far right, you will see them lose more and more market share. you did not mention young people. the questioner did not. young people, blacks, latinos, asians, women. it does not look good for them. i prefer focusing on the immigration issue. >> what role do the congressional caucuses of color, such as the congressional -- the hispanic caucus, the asian- american, caucus, and the black caucus play in reform? >> i think they need to play a
cleared for transfer, that the cia and department of justice and the fbi have looked at and concluded we are not to prosecute them, we do not have evidence, and we do not believe they present a significant risk to us, and we do not want to keep them -- they have been sitting in your after year at guantanamo because of their citizenship. because we do not trust the yemen government to be responsible. part of the justification for the drone program is that we have the consent of the many government to conduct the operation. they're not trustworthy when it comes to taking detainee's. it seems we're a bit hypocritical in our views of yemen. as i said, i think guantanamo remains a stain on our reputation. recently, congress passed a bill that prohibits granting visas to members of the russian government that refused to human rights the violations. president obama signed it. in retaliation, the russian government passed a bill that prohibits americans from adopting russian children, and president clinton, before signing it at a news conference, was quite angry about the bill that our governmen
are people who have been cleared for transfer, that the cia and department justice and the fbi and the burden of defense has looked at and concluded that we're not going to prosecute them, we don't have evidence and we don't believe they present a significant risk and we don't want to keep them. but they have been sitting year after year at guantanamo because of their citizenship. trust the yemeni government to be responsible for the detainee's which i find interesting. the justification for the drone program is that we have the consent of the yemeni government. they are defined government when they give consent to kill people but not trust for the one comes to taking detainee's. it seems we are a bit hypocritical in our view of yemen. i think guantanamo remains a stain on our reputation. recently, congress passed a bill that prohibits granting visas to members of the russian government who abuse human rights violations. president obama signed it. in retaliation, the russian government passed a bill that prohibits americans from adopting russian children and president vladimir putin before s
and the wiretapping and everything that the cia and the fbi has been doing. so the legacy that president obama is leaving is very complex and no conservative will be happy with it and a lot of liberals aren't going to be happy with it either. the obama doctrine is apparently don't make anybody happy. >> morris, let's move on to the next top wick all of the president's men, appointing a lot of white men to fill cabinet positions? >> i think the majority is still out on this. he's only announced a few. kerry, so i don't think there's a lot of people and a lot of spots to fill. we've still got to sort of shake things out. i think he's trying to appoint people that are number one, close to him and understand what he wants to get done in the next four years and he needs to bring diversity and we'd hoped to get that from susan rice and i think the jury is still out and we'll see ultimately what happens. >> anything hypocritical here, to defend the president. they went after mitt romney, for, you know. >> they would have gone after any president and any republican president with this record. i mean,
in the database. when you buy a gun, and they call into what we call the nik system that the fbi runs, that runs it through all the databases, and says whether you can or cannot buy that gun, now, if you've been adjudicated to be a violent schizophrenic, you may not be on that list, and we think that you should be. a lot of the other proposals in the strictly gun area that the administration is making are what i call feel-good proposals. >> okay. >> for example, the high-capacity magazinese magazi. why do people need those. >> the ar-15s -- >> do you have an ar-15? >> i do not, but my daughter does. >> what does she need it for? >> a lot of people who have served in the military, like to shoot for fun at the range, and in competition, the same gun they learned on or something similar to the same gun. she was in the army, she learned on a military weapon, this is the semi-automatic civilian version of that. it's the only gun she owns because she likes to go to the range and she likes to shoot it. >> you heard general mcchrystal say last night on cnn, he doesn't see why these military-type weapons
